Gioielli in Fermento at SOFA Chicago 2016

Gioielli in Fermento is an international exhibition project and award for contemporary studio jewelry. Starting from the landscapes of Italy in the winemaking region of Emilian hills, it opens its borders, inviting established and emerging artists from every country to express their relation with the wine world. Inspiration, dedication, experience, research, innovation, observation, choice, challenge: these are all elements of the creative approach that we can use to focus both on the activities of a jewellery artist or those of a winemaker. Both a piece of jewellery or a sip of wine are evocative of the individual interpretation of the raw material chosen by their maker. In both cases, the aim is turning the natural into something precious and unique.
Since 2011, six editions including more than 300 artists and their works have been presented under the selection of an international board of advisors in the field, with the kind collaboration of AGC Italian Contemporary Jewelry Association, Charon Kransen Arts, Klimt02 network, Joya Barcelona and Torre Fornello Winery.
A collection of work from the 2016 edition with a selected number of iconic pieces from previous editions will be presented in this Special Exhibit.

Presented by Gioielli in Fermento, Ziano Piacentino, Italy; curated by Eliana Negroni, curator, Gioielli in Fermento.

I would like to tell here all my admiration for the energy and all the efforts & work done by Eliana Negro,i ! APPLAUSE !!!

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Jina Seo – Toucher avec doigté ……

Jina Seo

Des objets très sombres, très tactiles -comme de la peau, mais quelle peau exactement ?- et donnant envie de la toucher, tâter, soupeser …., très « à double sens », IN or OUT -visions extérieures d’un corps, ou intérieures ?-, vus/vues du dedans ou du dehors ? comme ces gants qu’on retourne … d’ailleurs faits à partir de gants de cuir « vintages », retaillés, recoupés, recousus, ils ont la tactilité du cuir -sa souplesse, son  moelleux-, de la peau …. peau humaine, muqueuse(s), ou « juste » cuir ???
Jina Seo se joue de tous ces sens, dans le « bon sens », à « double sens », en « contresens », contre, tout contre, les sens …. comme avec innocence - »inno-sens »-, « l’innocence » de ces jeunes japonaises déguisées en baby-doll de mangas, avec ironie, tout est « comme si de rien n’était », mais tout est bien là ! Tout, du corps humain bien sûr.

« The extraordinary power of objects is obtained, because people believe in them. The more mundane the objects are, the more powerful they become.  My practice contextualizes the primitive energy that is submerged beneath the layers of  garments. When the body is removed, the absence becomes an empty structure. The internal structure is evidence of human existence.
It remains full of authentic spirit and fantasy. 
Through the processes of deconstructing and reconstructing materials into symbolic forms, I uncover the hidden intimate and sensual power of humanity. It is a moment when ordinary objects become surreal and uncanny in order to redeem the socially constructed expectations and perceptions. «

EXCHANGE-BIJOU 1 – Yiota VOGLI – Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky …

Classé dans : COUP DE COEUR,EXCHANGE-BIJOU,Grece (GR),SOFA Chicago (US),VIDEO,Yiota VOGLI (GR) — bijoucontemporain @ 0:50

Yiota Vogli  is not new on my blog, you know her !
She is not a new « discovery », une « DECOUVERTE », but she is still, and always!, a « COUP de COEUR »  :-) , as you can see on my last post where we could discover her « SUMMER WHITES » she did for the Athens Jewellery week, during summer 2016, « COUP de COEUR : Yiota Vogli, layers of paper, layers of MEMORY ….«  , but she is a little like Lucky Luke, doing new jewels faster than her shadow !!! ;-)
So here are her last creations we had the pleasure to discover at last JOYA Barcelona 2016 : the SHADOWS collection

« SHADOWS , 
We are aware of a tiny fraction of the thinking process that goes on in our minds, and we can control only a tiny part of our conscious thoughts. The vast majority of our thinking efforts go on subconsciously. »

 Yiota Vogli -  Shadows collection at JOYA 2016Yiota Vogli Shadows collection at JOYA 2016 – birds ….

« Shadows’ 2016, this body of works is the embodiment of a fantasy world populated with shadows, exotic birds, grotesque demons and fairies, an exploration of the aesthetic and literary values of such creatures and the real and symbolic nature of the shadow as an image and a figure. Thoughts like birds will always hover high in the sky but it is our responsibility to prevent the ‘birds’ from landing in our minds. Those creatures become symbolic statements and represent obsessions, our ideas and fears or projections of our subconscious. Based on this approach, they are merely symbolic representations of human psychological states. »
